Polka Dot Punches Butterfly

Here's a sneak peek of one of the Sale-A-Bration 2009 sets - Polka Dot Punches. The set has 4 stamps, all of which fit with one of SU!'s punches. On this card, I used the heart image and the new Full Heart punch to create a butterfly.

I started with a Gable Green card base and added a strip of Rainbow Sherbet dsp. I folded down one corner of the dsp to show off both designs on the paper. I stamped a sentiment from one of the new Level I hostess sets Sweet Little Sentiments, stamped in Green Galore ink. I also added some Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon.

To create the butterfly, I stamped the heart image twice in VersaMark ink on Tempting Turquoise scrap. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder and punched each out with the Full Heart punch. I attached them together at the points using a Mini Glue Dot. Next, I took a button (from Fresh Favorites I) and added a piece of wire, which I coiled around a toothpick to create the antennae. I used my Big Shot and Scallops #2 die to create the large scallop circle and then used one of my new Texturz Plates with the Big Shot to create the embossed background. I attached the butterfly to the scallop circle using Dimensionals, and placed the it on the card front also using Dimensionals.

A fun, "springy" card! Makes me think of warmer weather... :)

This is sooo cute Jen! I love how you made the hearts into butterflies and I really love the design on the hearts. More stuff for me to buy! I might have to go back to work soon:)

I love how you made the hearts into a butterfly! I'm definitely going to have to do that with my set!
